The Operation

August 4th, 2006 (06:32 pm)

current mood: annoyed

Well everything went just fine with dad's operation. He is in a bit of pain from it though (I wonder why??..lol).

The thing the got my mom and I miffed was dad's Dr. told us that dad would be in his room by 3pm ish, we get to the hospital @ 3:15 only to find out that dad is still in the recovery area waiting for a bed to open up. We were able to see him for about 10 minutes in the recovery area before we were kicked out. One of the Nurses said that a bed was being cleaned right then and it would not be every long before he would be in it. Well mom and I went down to the cafe to get something to drink while the room was getting ready. We go back up and we find out that dad is STILL waiting for the bed...arghhhhhhhhh!!!!! So after waiting 15 minutes in the waiting room we got tired of not hearing anything about what was going on and we went to ask a Nurse what the hell was going on and she phoned someone that said that they were bringing him to his room right then and told us to meet him at his room....she told us where to go ...and when we got there we found out we were sent to the wrong part of the floor....arghhhhhhhhhh!!!

So we finally got to the right place and dad was so out of it that we only stayed 20 minutes before we left to come home.

I'm glad to hear the operation went ok!! *hugs* Hospitals can be a real pain. I can't believe they didn't have a bed ready for him!

Thanks sgangel.

Well the only thing we could thing of about the bed bit was the Dr.'s were slow discharging people from the hospital.

Glad to hear that the operation went fine. Once when my father had surgery they kept him hanging out in the hallway for 5 hrs until they had a room ready and never told us what was going on.

Hope he comes home soon. ((hugs))
